Brexit, the Pound (£) and the CU80.

Over the past few weeks we have been excitedly releasing information, renders and images of the CU80 and we are pleased to say that the initial feedback has been overwhelming. Many of you have told us that this is the keyboard you have been waiting for – a feature rich, custom (ISO) TKL that is available at affordable price – and we really appreciate the support!

Despite this positive note, as you are most likely aware, the UK in currently in the process of leaving the EU. Although the final terms are still unknown, many small businesses are facing the consequences of Brexit; we are no exception.

Although we have worked hard to offer the CU80 at the competitive price of £129.99 (inc VAT), the GBP to USD exchange rate is declining rapidly and we are uncertain whether the rate (currently at 1.21) will increase; we are expecting the rate to decrease further due to “No Deal” being the most likely outcome. As a result, we regret to inform the community that the price of the CU80 base kit will be increasing from £129.99 to £149.99.

We know that this change is unexpected, and we understand any frustration you may have. we still believe that the CU80 is great value, especially for European mechanical keyboard enthusiasts looking to getting into customs. In addition to this, we are pleased to say that the MOQ is still 25 units!

Regarding importing into and exporting out of the UK, will be a proxy for the CU80. As the Group Buy is a few months before the UK exits the EU, and with the lead time expected to be a month, we don’t think that there will be a delay with any European orders but in case there is, will be able to distribute any European orders. We will also be releasing info on Asian and North American proxies soon.

We are excited for the Group Buy and can’t wait for it to start! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via the “Contact Us” page.

P.S. The rate may rebound between now and the group buy. If that does happen than we will look to reducing the price again!
